The first couple of photos are from sporting events high on the minds of Britons: Wimbledon and the World Cup. Also included is a photo of John Isner’s final victory at the end of an epic record-setting 11 hour 5 minute match against Nicolas Mahut.
Between them are summer solstice celebrations and revellers marking the 40th anniversary of the Glastonbury festival, as well as a race of Sumo-suited runners and the winner of the Golden Jubilee Stakes at Royal Ascot.
For the Royal Ascot meeting ends every evening with race fans congregating around the bandstand for a roustabout singalong with the band of the Welsh Guards.
